They dusted off the chaps for one more ride and put on a show full of triumph and disaster. This "Blast from the Past" included top notch jurassic cowboys and cowgirls taking on rank bulls for that eight second rush of adrenaline. And it was awesome!
No signs of rust with these guys as they rode like it was yesterday and legend bull rider Don Gay called the event from the announcers booth.
This event was hosted at the Knapp Ranch in Mansfield Texas and put together by Dale Fultz. This action packed bull riding event was everything it was promised to be, and there are more editions of this Blast from the Past series to come. Stay tuned.
Not to be out done, the girls climbed into the chutes to show the crowd that girl tough is tough enough. Crystal Juare took her bull for a wild ride all the way to the bank!
Watching bull riding is one of the most exciting sports on the planet because bulls are mean and the rider must be crazy.
The danger in riding bulls is plain to see but the love of the sport outweighs the thoughts of risk and each rider knows to respect the animals they ride.
This past weekend that risk thrill of the ride turned into disaster as DeeDee Crawford was involved in a horrible wreck that has changed her life.
A fundraising effort has been started to assist DeeDee with her medical bills with a goal of $50,000 dollars. For more information regarding her condition and progress please click here.
I met DeeDee just before the event started and she was so light hearted and kind. Its terrible to see anybody get hurt, but its especially sad when it happens to someone as nice as Ms Crawford. To everybody in the rodeo community who knows a girl who rides and understands that bad things happen I ask you to extend a hand and help this member of the rodeo family who is in real need of support, prayers and money to help her recover from this devastating event. All donations help regardless of the dollar amount. Share this link
